3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Tap 25. This one pours a nice clear reddish brown color with a thin, off white head. The aroma is big on dark fruit, mostly cherry and plum with a touch of molasses and citrus hops. The flavor is the same with a bit of roasted malt in the finish. More toasty than I would have expected from the aroma. Solid, neutral bitterness. This drank more like an American Strong Ale really. Enjoyable.
